i want to focus in on across the south bay. this is where you'll have the most dramatic differences. look at 8:00 in the morning. temperatures in the upper 30s. clear skies. and by 1:00, you better dress those kids with the jackets because it's not going to warm up a lot. only expecting 50 degrees throughout the early afternoon hours. let's take a look at the freeze warnings. the spot in it the worst tomorrow morning will be the north bay counties from santa rosa to petaluma, towards mill valley. and napa and sonoma will be 25 to 36 degrees. wednesday night and thursday, we're going to see another wave of these freeze warnings issued here for the east bay, south bay and the peninsula. that could be some of the coldest weather throughout the week, as we head wednesday night into thursday. let's idea since we have the time and look at the overall weather pattern. the thing that makes this4
different than just cold air across the bay is the jet stream. it's positioned that the upper level winds are coming out of the north i do not see this changing over the next two to three days. tomorrow morning. we'll have 28 in santa rosa. 30 in petaluma. and the spot that has 20 tomorrow morning, that will likely be napa as we headé throughout 6:00 in the morning. as we head throughout thursday morning, the east bay getting into the 20s. san jose at 32 degrees. here's the overall details if you're just tuning in. some of the coldest weather as we head throughout thursday morning. bring the pets inside. not too late. and for yourself, don't forget you. you can wear the layers tomorrow morning.
